    "The tea-baggers are now streaming past the Black Family Reunion Celebration," writes Slog tipper and commenter BrinkleyBoy. "There is a LOT of tension in the air. The fact that nearly ALL the tea-baggers are white hasn't been lost on the BFRC attendees—a group that is, I might mention, significantly more diverse than the tea-baggers.
    "Many of the attendees of the Black Family Reunion Celebration have mentioned something you said in your earlier post, Dan. The teabaggers were silent about so many of the same issues that they're now harping on. I heard one BFRC attendee remark, 'That's how you know it's not about politics, it's about race.'"


    The comments are the best..
    The irony. The Tea Baggers run across the Black Family Reunion. I can just imagine the conversations.

    Me, too (the disgust part). I think it's a good idea to post all this insanity rather than ignore it, because I don't think people realize how low this country has fallen. The rank ignorance and disrespect of these creatures is shocking.

    It doesn't scare me at all.

    We've always had our share of vocal ignoramuses.....this is no different. They've existed all throughout our history. I remember firsthand the anger and violence of the vietnam protests, busing....seen civil rights footage......and I've read up on other eras in the US where we had angry people taking to the streets. Actual rioting. We've come through far worse.

    ^^Agreed. This country has seen people acting far worse than they are now, and we got through it.

    I watched that clip earlier today and I seem to remember David Gergen saying that he had never seen anything like this. He looked totally unable to hide his disgust. Usually he's so polite he can do it.

    I remember last fall when Gergen commented on Palin's Munich beer hall rallies. He was disgusted by how those were going too.

    Considering Jimmy Carter just made the news for comments on how these "teabaggers" are somewhat fueled by racism, we definitely haven't heard the last of this yet.

    James Carville had the best reaction. Just laugh in the guy's face.

    But the sneaky thing that Mr. Tea Bagger did was mix in real concerns about corporations and politicians with the rest of his crazy rhetoric. Although I wish somebody would've asked him if the marches are suppose to represent 'average Americans' why isn't there any diversity? That's what makes it look racist.

    It would be like having a female president, and a bunch of men, regardless of race, started marching to complain about how she was 'destroying' the country. It would come off as sexist.
